Program

The Neuroscience master’s program will provide students with a broad knowledge in the field of neuroscience ranging from molecular and cellular to integrative neuroscience.

  • High-skilled researchers, clinicians and experts in the vast and ever-growing field of neuroscience coming from universities, research institutes, hospitals, and industries
  • Experimental skills using cutting-edge techniques (ten-month internship in Paris or abroad)
  • Skills in project management, experimental design, data analysis, and scientific communication.
  • Over 50 research laboratories and facilities involved in this program

A master’s degree for motivated students willing to pursue a career in the field of neuroscience, in both public and private sectors. An access to different PhD schools in France and abroad.

During the first year of the program (M1), students will acquire a solid theorical knowledge in neuroscience with an emphasis on experimental neuroscience research.

→ Courses taught in English and in French (depending on the teaching unit)

→ State-of-the-art technology in neuroscience research

→ Methodology in neuroscience taught during each semester

→ An overall four-month internship is required to validate the first year, either a long internship abroad or two different two-month internships

Our facilities of cutting-edge technologies are actively involved during internships and lab sessions.

SEMESTER 2

 

CORE MODULES

Models, experimental design and statistics

Project management and scientific valorization

 

INTERNSHIP

– Two two-month internships in different locations (research lab, facility of cutting-edge technology, or industry OR one long internship abroad (4 months) – full description

During the second year of the program (M2), students will acquire more in-depth knowledge in different fields of neuroscience. Core and optional modules in cellular and molecular neuroscience and integrative neuroscience are offered. Students can take on free module from other master’s degrees (Master of Genetics, BioMedical Engineering, CogMaster, …)

→ Courses taught in English

→ State-of-the-art technology in neuroscience research

→ Personal and team working to elaborate a research project in neuroscience

→ An overall six-month internship in France or abroad is required to validate the M2 level
